    The secret gathering of cardinals tasked to elect the next leader of the Catholic church has sent up black smoke out of the chimney atop the Sistine Chapel, signaling that no pope has been chosen.

    Earlier on Tuesday, 115 cardinals entered the Vatican's Sistine Chapel to start their deliberations.
